Finally riding a big boys bike
In 1975 a French Normandy based farmer, Seraphin FRANCOIS, donated the WW2 era US Army G519 Columbia MG145375 bicycle to the Airborne Museum in Sainte Mere Eglise where it has been on display ever since.
Over the years it was restored and except maybe for the tires it doesn't look half bad....
During the Covid lockdown, the museum's halls were refurbished and the bicycle ended up in a separate cabinet.
so far so good....
BUT what do you do when you realize the display cabinet isn't deep enough???
No, you don't cut a hole in the rear panel... You just cut the handlebars with original OD torpedo style grip off...

I had to look twice, but yep, that's what they did....
